Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
The CA landlord tenant code does not specify any time limit for a tenant to review and sign a new lease. This is entirely at the landlord's discretion as to how much time the landlord wants to give to sign the lease. The tenant can ask for the time they wish, but the landlord has the final say as to when they expect the contract signed and can refuse to accept a contract that is not signed by that time.
Thank you for your reply.
Under CA law, there are various time limits for eviction notices. First, for non-payment of rent, it is 3 days. For regular eviction if the tenant has been in the property 12 months or less, it is 30 days and if they have been in the property more than 12 months, it is 60 days.
